On the playlist this week is Indiana and Bound. Her song takes up the weekly BBC Introducing slot on the Radio 1 playlist after being recommended by her local BBC Introducing show in the East Midlands. HUGE NAME DJs including Scott Mills, Dev, Sara Cox and Greg James (a regular reader of this blog so we hear) will be playing Bound during their shows. But you can listen to Bound right now and find out a bit more about Indiana at the same time too.
Style: It’s hard not to be caught up by Bound. The intense production is brooding, looming, even a little scary and is perfectly stalked by Indiana’s haunting vocal. There’s so much to this track that fans of The xx, Bat For Lashes, James Blake and Jamie Woon will really dig. Oh, and the bass broke my headphones a bit.
You need to know: It was only a year ago that Indiana played her first live gig as part of a performance for Future Sound of Nottingham.
Supported by: Her local show BBC Introducing in the East Midlands have been proud supporters of Indiana’s work. She also played a BBC Introducing showcase at London’s Borderline alongside the Ruen Brothers and Ady Suleiman.
Find out more: Check out her BBC Introducing session here. Huw Stephens will be playing tracks from her time at Maida Vale on his Wednesday night show.
